I am 74, I just got diagnosed acsending aorta aneurysm, 4.3cm, I am on BP control, i believe I need by pass surgery in 1-2 years, my Dr said it is very risk surgery, I am not sure how scary it is, but just wait to see what happen next... Anyone know if LAC+USC is a good place for by pass surgery

Hello and welcome.  This is Kitt and sorry for the delay in responding to you but I was on vacation for a bit.
From the info I have, Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles is rated approxiamtely in the 9th position as the one of the top 50 best cardiac-heart surgery hospitals in the USA.
I have no personal info re this rating at all.
